Murgor Increases Land Position at the Golden Arrow Project

KINGSTON, ON, Feb. 22, 2012 /CNW/ - Murgor Resources Inc. (MGR: TSX Venture Exchange) announced today that it has acquired a 100% interest in a key patented claim covering 160 acres contiguous to its Golden Arrow Mine property east of Timmins, Ontario.  Under the terms of the agreement, Murgor acquired both mining and surface rights to the property from a private individual for total cash considerations of $80,000.  The property is free and clear of any royalty.

Meanwhile, Murgor continues its third phase of drilling at the Golden Arrow property with two drill rigs in operation on-site.  The drilling program thus far has focused on drilling near the existing open pit area, successfully expanding upon the mineralized zones on strike and at depths of over 425 metres vertical. Just recently, Murgor initiated a property-scale exploration drilling program designed to test the Golden Arrow Fault and a number of parallel structures.  Murgor has now completed a total of just over 15,000 metres of drilling at the property since acquiring this past producing project in February 2011.  Murgor is currently awaiting assay results for twelve drill holes at the Golden Arrow Property.

About the Golden Arrow Gold Mine

The Golden Arrow property consists of 18 mining patents and leases, and four mining claims covering 787 hectares in Hislop and Playfair Townships located 65 kilometres east of the City of Timmins in Ontario.  In 1981 and 1982, a total of 303,449 tons of ore was mined at a grade of 0.066 oz/t (2.15 g/t) from the Arrow open pit.  Mining ceased due to low gold prices.

The property was originally explored underground in the 1940's to by the Golden Arrow Mining Company Ltd. who sank a shaft to a depth of 435 ft (130 m) below surface and undertook about 700 m of horizontal development on the 250 ft (76 m) and 400 ft (122 m) levels.

The Golden Arrow property is underlain by mafic flows and syenite intrusions with younger post mineral diabase dikes. Gold mineralization is generally hosted within a syenite intrusion and consists of a stockwork of quartz veinlets situated within a broader halo of pink to brick-red potassic alteration.  Mineralized zones are related to a NE-SW structure associated with the Porcupine-Destor Fault Zone.  The property covers a two kilometre strike extent of this NE-SW structure.  The Golden Arrow gold deposit is located 9 km SW of the past-producing Ross Gold Mine which produced nearly one million ounces of gold between 1936 and 1989.  Also located in Hislop Township are present-day producers, the Hislop Mine of St Andrew Goldfields Ltd. and the Black Fox Mine of Brigus Gold Corp.  Please visit for additional information about the Golden Arrow Gold Mine.
